Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since my last blog, but I haven't really felt like writing anything as of late since most things are pretty much the same with me. I've noticed in most of my blogs they've always been about personal things or something completely off the wall, so why not for once I talk about what I've been doing with my gaming since it is summer and all?
Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II
You guys know me... I can never go a blog without mentioning my favorite blue hedgehog and his latest outing, Sonic 4 Episode II is a mixed bag. On one hand it's a step up from Episode I since Tails is here and Sonic's momentum has been improved as well as some more original bosses, but there's also disappointment because the music is sorely lacking compared to other Sonic games and the fact that the ending pretty much means no Episode III. Overall though I enjoyed Episode II and thought it was much better than Episode I because of the improvements, but curse that seventh special stage, it's a pain in the ass!
The Walking Dead
To be honest I didn't expect The Walking Dead video game to be any good because it's hard to emulate what Robert Kirkman has done with The Walking Dead, but since I am a fan of The Walking Dead I decided to give the game a try and actually liked the demo. So I bought the first episode and beat it in a few hours, but within those few hours I instantly dropped my opinion of saying that a game based on the comic couldn't work and yet it does. The characters and story are top notch and it's very much like the comics based on what decisions you've made. I enjoyed episode one so much that I bought the season pass so I can get all five episodes. I've already completed episode two as well and it was so much more gripping. I just wonder how episode three will be when it comes out in August?
Max Payne 3
I gave my thoughts on Max Payne 3 back in May when the game was first released and it's now July. I've beaten the game already and got a few of the other achievements for it, but the reason Max Payne 3 is still here is because the multiplayer is awesome and sometimes it's quite addicting. I really wish I had the money to afford the Local Justice Map Pack, but it's not necessary as of right now since I'm doing just fine with what I have. I'd definitely say Max Payne 3 is worth the money since the story and everything is quite engrossing, but then again what do you expect from Rockstar?
I picked up Bioshock a few weeks ago since I've always heard how amazing the game is and I gotta say everyone was right about it being amazing. It maybe an FPS, but it's got enough going for it to identify its away from most other FPS. The characters are engaging and Andrew Ryan is perhaps one of the best villains in a game I've seen in years. The atmosphere is also amazing and despite it being on the PS3, it controls quite well. I still feel ashamed that I never played this game when it came out, but I suppose it's as good as anytime to start playing.
Although Darksiders II doesn't come out until August I was a fan of the first game and thought it was pretty good. So when they announced their would be a sequel and the fact that you control Death this time around is awesome. I already put down some money on the game and hope it turns out to be one of the best surprises of summer. It's too bad the game isn't receiving more hype though.
Well, that's pretty much all for this blog and I'll try to make another blog before July is out since I kinda feel bad for not making one in almost two months, until next blog! :D
